I would like to get one because of the Mario 64 DS game, I liked Mario 64 alot and the DS game is suposed to allow you to play as mario, wario, Luigi, and yoshi. All have different moves and special abilities. I like the fact that it will be backwards compatible with the GBA and SP systems. I am trying to decide if I'm going to get a PSP or the DS though. If they come out with a Mariokart and some good RPG's then I'll definitely go for the DS.

I'll be getting one, just not sure when. Final Fantasy 3 (not the FF3 for SNES, that was actually FF6) may finally be released in America, for the DS. Mario 64 DS, Metroid Prime Hunters, and the potential to have Super Smash Bros., and Mario Kart 64 (or Double Dash), portable, as well as backwards compatibility with GBA ... yeah, I'll be getting it.

You can reserve it all the way up to the day before the release. I just left gamestop from getting Halo 2 ( ) , asked about reserving it and saw the price and told them "FUGGGGG THAT!". Ill wait till they go down to $99 like the GBA SP. 149.99 is just too much IMO even with all the features it has.

That's only if you have to have it the day it comes out.

Personally I can wait a little while.

with the PSP coming out not too long after the DS, I'm just going to wait and see what kind of games and graphic, etc. come out for both of them.

I know this is blasphemy, but I wish sony and Nintendo would merge so I could have my nintendo character creativity with sony's developmental and hardware skills. Basically it would be the death of nintendo and sony incorporating the nintendo characters, but hey everything would be better in my opinion then.

I doubt I will, I generally don't like the handheld systems. And the only games that would work well on them, imo, are RPGs. And those seem to come in limited quality for those systems.

I'll wait until I see some games for the PSP before deciding if I'm going to buy it. All I keep hearing about the PSP is how awesome it's going to be... yet little to no mention of any developers signing up to make games for it, little to no mention of games that will be available for release.

And always "It should be out in a few more weeks"... yet last I'd heard ... a couple months ago ... was that Sony had delayed the system yet again ... the general speculation is that they haven't been able to figure out how to get it to last more than an hour on battery power, without making it bulky and clumsy.

And the latest news is that Sony is going to require the game developers to be "conservative" in their development, so the games don't eat up so much battery life. So much for finding a solution for the battery life problem... make the developers figure it out :-/ ... But hey, at least they can now release it before Christmas, right?

Portable gaming isn't so portable when you gotta be plugged in.

And the DS's wireless isn't limited to being in the same room. It has built in WiFi, which potentially could mean gaming over the internet, should developers decide to incorporate it. The bundled Chat software already makes use of the WiFi, to make a graphical IM client that can send both standard text messages, as well as handwritten/drawn text or pictures, by using the touchscreen.

Check the fry's ad in the friday newspaper. They have just about everything on the day the item launches, sometimes prices are under msrp. Make sure you go early though because there will be a line for it.

I walked into Wally world in Hickory Creek, picked one up and walked out. I'm gonna let it charge overnight and try it out tomorrow.

I guess they'll have Mario 64 DS for it, but I didn't feel like waiting around. The good news is that I already have several GBA games that I can still play on it.
